African Orphas Project. As a result of the HIV/AIDs pandemic, average life expectancy of many villagers in South Africa is less than 40 years. This leaves hundreds of young orphans without a home, a caregiver, and at times, even food to eat. The mission of the African Orphans Project is to provide simple, decent homes for vulnerable children and their caregivers, and to expand the ability of the local Lutheran church to provide ongoing support to these families. Through the African Orphans Project partners and participants, we are able to provide the orphans of Shongweni with a church, homes, support, and a community center for training and education programs. www.hhafrica.com
